• Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long can I expect the drive-through to take?

    Time spent in the drive-through completely depends on the flow of traffic. The drive is 1/2 mile long with over 1,000,000 lights. Vehicles can go through as many times as they'd like and there is about 40 minutes of music programming total.

    Do I need to make a reservation?

    No, you do NOT need to make a reservation or specify a time to attend Sever's Holiday Lights. Online tickets are valid ANY TIME we are open. If you are looking to attend during a less busy time, we recommend coming on Mondays through Thursdays or right at opening at 5PM. Our busiest week is the week of Christmas; however, being exclusively a drive through, the lines are constantly moving as there is no stopping allowed.

    What are the age limits for tickets?

    Anyone ages 2+ needs a ticket. Children 1 and under are free and do not require a ticket. There are no senior or military discounts at this time.
